Should a games sequel be more of the same, or try and innovate?
What do we want out of sequels?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head right into the weekly raid (our news roundup).
New this week, Marvel gives us all the warm fuzzies as they celebrate Detective Comics #1000. Nostalgia kicks into high gear with the Genesis Mini and Warcraft announcements. Gearbox has finally given the fans what they want with ALL the Borderlands news and EA decides it’s time to clear house.
This weeks BOSS ROOM is all about video game sequels and what fans really want out of them.
As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
